I just installed 2021.1 EAP on a new PC and I can no longer see the local changes, which is why I started to create this post.
I had previously asked why you changed the name of the view from VCS to Git and went searching for that post to link in here.
Instead of finding that I found essentially the same question from 4 months ago.
Now that I have it back again, there are Checkboxes next to every file and directory in the Local Changes view.
However, you can't actually tick any of them!
Why do you keep messing with the VCS view and making it worse to use every time??
